There is no claim, “hidden” or otherwise, that evolution “is result from abiogenesis”. The theory of evolution through natural selection is in no way dependent upon any particular mechanism, natural or miraculous, that resulted in the formation of life. Evolution is only dependent upon that life, once formed, being an imperfect replicator subject to selective pressure; and it is.

But IS it too much to ask that someone actually know and understand the difference between evolution and abiogenesis before them wanting their opinion on the subject taken seriously?

Apparently so.

Are you saying that abiogenesis did not happen?
